Searching in SharePoint is a quick way to locate content that you don’t necessarily know where it resides. However, when there is a large amount of documents (say 1000’s of items) search might not be very helpful. This is when searching for content and using metadata filters makes finding content much easier. Below are guides based on how search works with filters.
Using filters needs to be done at the library level. As you can see the column “Product_Name” is available to filter against. But we still cannot find the file in the view we are looking for.
Just searching for a team still brings back way too many results. This is when we also apply a filter to the result.
Once applied, we are left with a single item.
